aibu to book a nice hotel for one night for just me. is that selfish? i work full time and have a 2yr old. we dont go out, socialise, drink, nothing. both me and dp suffer from depression but are slowly getting better. i would just love one night away not to go out on the town, but to get a long bath, a bed to myself (co sleep with ds), some tv time and read a book. breakfast in morning then home.

AIBU? i would have to save up but am i being selfish to do this? money is tight and havent bought anything for myself in i dont know how long

YANBU but be prepared for your dp to want to do the same at some point

no he wont want to. he doesnt like going out and a night away would be his worst nightmare so am safe there. and i will be let know how much i "owe" him for minding ds for the night.

If your DS is agreeable to it, I think it's a great idea.

My DD was 1 when I had to go away for a week on my own. It gave me a much needed break and DH a chance to do things his way for a week (and find out what it actually was I did every day!)

I appreciated him for enabling it, he appreciated that until then he hadn't been doing his 'fair share'.

It was beneficial for both of us.
